about. the president had no come back for that. >> sean: he kept saying well this is bill clinton's plan. bill clinton hasn't been president for four years. and romney kept going back to one in six americans in poverty. and 15 mill yn on food stamps. four years you have been president. he was almost running as if he never held the office. >> i think all of barack obama's attacks on mitt romney are based on myth. you can get away with that in a 30 second commercialist or an interview. but standing face-to-face with someone ready to call you out on it you're not going to get away with it. he was exposed. the president and his agenda exposed tonight z this race will never be the same after tonight. >> sean: a agree with that z this is interesting. because the meeting -- media never did do their job. mitt romney kept looking him in the eye. and obama looking down. didn't have answers and anecdotes didn't fit the question or moment. he was meandering. you know? for -- who bill mahr tweeted out i think he does need a teleprompter. >> the president built a mythical campaign. now you have to sta
clinton negotiated. that's not the way -- that ronald reagan negotiated. that's know the way i have ever negotiated. >> greta: you imagine president clinton, his name came up twice with president obama, using him as an example. should he -- is that a fair comparison, comparing himself with president clinton? >> well, as you know, president clinton has a very good approval rating. but to compare what he has done in our failure in this fiscal cliff and sequestration wees are facing to what president clinton did, after he lost in the off-year lec elections, he sat down with bob dole and newt gingrich and they reform welfare and put themselves on a path to a balanced budget. the same way that ronald reagan did with tip o'neill. they sat down and they negotiated. this president doesn't do that. and that's, in my view, something that has caused huge frustration amongst the american people. why last night he said, well... the reason why we don't go across the aisle is because have you to say no sometimes? is that the basis of it? i don't think so. >> greta: you know i thought as a counterpart t
to bill clinton. bill clinton has a touch. >> everyone is aloof compared to bill clinton. >> exactly. >> let's talk about mitt romney. strengths, weakness. >> mitt romney's strength is that he is, comes across as competent, as a capable human being. as somebody who projects an air of authority, especially when he talks about the economy. that is the private sector track record. the flip side, the weakness is the 47%. some of the attacks he's taken in terms of that business record. i think mitt romney's biggest problem though, chris, is the sense people can't be sure exactly if he believes what he's saying. he needs to project authentic passion for what he believes his plan would do for the american economy to make the 47% lives better as well as the other 53. >> what do you think, e.j.? >> i thought the definitive line on politics, what you need is sincerity, if you can fake that, you can do anything. it's troublesome on this question of authenticate. what is authenticity? romney has taken a number of positions on issues which you will be sure obama will try to sneak in there somehow
clinton was accused to. >> brian: it was a bigger deal. i think they will focus on him. i don't think he has governed a black or white american. if nothing else unemployment in africa-american communities are through the roof. i thought allen west comments were insightful. he said i tell you first of all. i was born in raise in georgia. and i am sursurprised that the southern acent with the president raised hawaii. and hoe was able to do that. >> steve: and we'll have the story live. put down that remote. he will be up this hour. >> brian: another story . the department of justice denied that the suspected terrorist held in gitmowill be coming to the united states. the white house bypassed congress and spending money on a federal prison. it is it a back door move that could begin that process. joe, what do you think this is all about? >> first of all i will try to keep my acent one way through the whole thing. one thing, this thing is just another lawless act by our administration to circumvent congress and go around the american people. we fought this thing two years ago. and it was thr
and the clinton global initiative. we begin with president clinton. >> we continue with former prime minister tony blair. >> and we conclude with the president of iran, mahmoud ahmadinejad. three perspectives on the middle east, the arab spring and iran when we continue. funding for charlie rose was provided by the following: captioning sponsored by captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: new york city this week was the site of two major global conferences, one the united nations general assembly in which representatives of the nations who are members of the general assembly come here, including heads of state and foreign ministers and others at the clinton global initiative, business and government and ngo s were in attendance to talk about big ideas, big problems. one of the problems they talked about at both places was syria. another was middle east protest about a film that attacked mohammed and the third was iran and nuclear weapons. we begin with the former president of the united states bill clinton in conversation with m
committee today sent a letter to the state department asking for answers in person from secretary clinton, leveling serious allegations including these, the attack quote, was clearly neve as administration officials once insisted, the result of a popular protest. more damningly, this, quote, multiple u.s. federal government officials have confirmed the committee that prior to the september 11 attacks, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the letter goes on to detail a series of attacks and incidents in libya that formed the basis for those calls for more security resources, resources that the letter alleges were denied by officials in washington. we'll have more on that angle shortly. first, arwa damon joins me. she's back from libya and joins me here in new york. very good to see you safe and sound. walk me back. you were at the site three days after the attack. you have some still photographs that have never been seen before. describe what we see. >> well, the first in these photographs is basically the exterior of the main building at the
but had one of his best surrogates former president bill clinton aides say will be the primary case tonight which this was an economic crisis he inherited and tough to turn around in one term. take a listen to bill clinton. >> the economy is not fixed. i'm telling you nobody could have fixed this much damage in four years. but the president's economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run and a vision of we're all in this together is a heck of a lot better than you're on your own. there is no you're on your own country in the world succeeding like those who have a good we're all in this together strategy. [cheers and applause] none, not one. the challenge for the president tonight though is back in early 2009 he said if he didn't turn around the economy for n. three years it would be a one-term proposition. that's the problem when you are incouple again you have got a record that's going to it be under microscope not just from the moderator but mitt romney as well, shep. >> shepard: it seems he has a strategy of his own for going after mitt romney. >> when you talk
who wins the first debate. >> the day after, victory for perot. clinton hold his own. trouble for the president. there's no one scorecard for determining who won and who lost last night, but a consensus does seem to be emerging. ross perot, the star of the night because no one knew what to expect. bill clinton just good enough. and president bush, he'll have to do much better. >> by morning, what had been last night's analysis had become conventional wiwisdom. in the headlines. on the "today" show. >> clinton did what he had to do and bush did not. >> and in instant polls. >> those polls show the president finishing third among people who watched the first debate. >> the bush people are getting very, very tired of hearing that the president did not hit a home run last night. >> so at this point as a nation, in our entire history as a country, we have had four national attempts of a challenger making his television debate debut against the sitting president of the united states. and after doing this four times as a nation, the record for incumbent presidents facing these challe
president clinton's high in the sky plan to spend $6 billion for clean energy. was dead on arrival. obama got $90 billion in his first months before his staff could find bathrooms in the west wing. just ridiculous. the stimulus was pouring unprecedented rivers of cash and renewables and energy efficiency and every imaginable form, advanced biofuel and electric vehicles and cutting edge research, smarter grid, cleaner coal, factories to make that green stuff in the united states. it was by far the biggest energy bill in history. kind of got me curious what else was in the stimulus everyone was laughing about. i did some investigative reporting with a google search. i learned that the stimulus had also launched race to the top which was a real moment. have you heard of race to the top? there was a huge deal in the education reform world that was supposed to transform public schools. i had no idea it was the stimulus program. did any of you? any way, it became clear there was a huge story can in plain view. most of the stimulus was standard keynesian stimulus, pumping money into the economy
on that stage and cannot wait to be there and are eager to make their case. bill clinton was like that. ronald reagan was like that. these two are not like that. for them, this is more, please do not let me do anything wrong, than, what can i do right? as was discussed earlier, he needs a dramatic moment to shift the momentum. if he is intimidated by the experience or feeling boxed in, he is less likely to do that. for obama, it is more a question for maintaining his lead. he does not want to do anything right now that reverses the trajectory he is on. i would expect he is a little timid as well. >> if you look at past debates, one dealing with policy, the moment with gerald ford, the other is more style, where obama made a joke about his age. how much is policy and how much a style in these debates? >> i think probably my judgment would be a lot of it is stylistic. it is the way they come across to the voters. it is not necessarily as much what they are saying as how they are saying it. every once in awhile, it is really more of a case of glitch avoidance. that has a lot to do with their hand
hillary clinton. he then enacted the biggest mandate in the history of the country. so i think the best way -- what i would suggest is don't go on defense. everybody in politics has these change positions. so you go after the president for some of those really dramatic flip-flops that he's had just like everybody else. >> rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, he's in denver helping the romney campaign get ready for a huge night, debate night in america. mr. mayor, thanks for joining us. >> thank you, wolf. take care. >> thank you. >>> and just ahead here in "the situation room," we're going to hear from the other side, stephanie cutter, the deputy cap pain manager for barack obama, she's going to join us live from denver as well. that's coming up later. our new poll shows voters have very definite ideas about who they expect will win tonight. gloria borger is standing by. she's got the numbers.

, the man who served as secretary for bill clinton. robert reich. and grover norquist, president of americans for tax reform. we're coming right back. >>> welcome back. something that very possibly could come up tonight is governor romney floating the idea of capping tax deductions at $17,000. would that effectively be a tax increase? and would it work to bring down the deficit? with us now robert reich who served as labor secretary under bill clinton and grover nor qui quist. >> he's made that commitment as has paul ryan and certainly the vast majority of republicans in the house. which is a commitment not to raise overall taxes. romney's committed to cutting all tax rates at least 20%. ryan and the house republicans want to go to a top rate of 25% corporate and individual. romney's made it clear. any changes are in the context of keeping overall taxes from going up and making sure the middle class doesn't get hit request higher taxes. it's not a tax increase, he's made that clear. >> mr. secretary, a lot of discussion about whether or not the wealthy or the middle class familie
gorbachev. what do you think about? >> is that because bill clinton has been such a great president they elected in great part, or is there something, i want to say, almost about a man who could getaway with things over and over again? >> she clearly hated being not others just bill clinton's wife. finally, last november 1998, hillary clinton showed the world what she could do in the campaign trail without him. political mastery, every bit as dapper lee ♪ >> for castro, freedom stirs education. and if literacy alone was the yardstick on the kivu would rank as one of the freest nations on earth. the literacy rate, 96%. >> the new speaker was on the floor for a time holding her six-year-old grandson, although i give you directions on how events were to proceed good it seems the ultimate in multitasking. taking care of the children in the country. >> people apology to savior, the messiah, messenger change. >> i would like to say that in some ways, barack obama is the first president since george washington to be taking a step down into the oval office. >> we know that wind can make a
to the clinton global initiative about reforming foreign aid, for god's sake. there was a huge opportunity missed. the core problem is this un willingness to go large, to go big. he seems reluctant to do it. >> nina? >> i will not take on charles on the merits of the arguments, although i agree that a major foreign policy speech -- i don't think what a change things, but it would make him look like a more serious person in some ways. but i think that 47% tape was lethal. now, he has not lost, and barack obama is not a great campaigner, and when it is in practice, he is a pretty good debater. -- mitt is in practice, he is a pretty good debater. but because the 47% video was truly genuine, because it was him talking and not knowing he was taped, and played into every stereotype of barack obama saw to paint about him, it has had an enormous effect. >> evan? >> it should not be bad politics -- to be a bad politician should not necessarily heard you when people hate politicians. but romney has not been able to turn that into our virtue. there is the reliability problem, and if there is what nina is ta

that president obama was kurt with hilary clinton. >> i don't think i am that bad. >> you are likable enough hilary. >> thank you. >> jennifer: there has been endless speculation about who is going to do better and of course the fact is they both have weaknesses when it comes to debating, and how do they get over those weaknesses. joining us tonight for more on how we can expect the to perform is alan schroeder. he is a professor of journalism at northeastern university and author of "presidential debates: 50 yours of high risk tv". love it! welcome inside "the war room" professor. >> thank you very much. i wanted to start by saying can i call you jennifer the way that sarah palin -- >> only if you wink when you do that. >> right. right. >> jennifer: you absolutely can, let's start with the candidate's weaknesses. you have said that president obama has several weaknesses. he may be overly cautious rusty, out of practice and testy. any of those fatal flaws? >> not necessarily unless they are magnified in a way that make them a fatal flaw. but related to all of that is this ide

. at the state department margaret brennan reports secretary clinton promises a full accounting. >> reporter: were there requests for increase in security in been gazay and did your office reject those requests? >> let me start by cautioning everyone against seizing on any single statement or piece of information to draw a final conclusion. over the course of this review there will naturally be a number of statements made, some of it -- some of which will be borne out and some of which will not. >> reporter: clinton and her aides have consistently pointed to intelligence reports that indicated there was no threat to the u.s. mission, and that it was intelligence agencies that initially said the attack was sparked by a spontaneous demonstration. >> i am aware too that many people are eager for answers. so am i, margaret and no one wants the answers more than we do here at the department. >> reporter: senior aides are handing over emails and paper work to congressional investigators who want to know who knew about the security situation in benghazi. the state department's own five person revie

show rounds. you might say why wasn't it hillary clinton. the man who died worked for her. she is the secretary of state. does that add to the intrigue here as to why the ultimate person in charge wasn't going out? >> well, i think susan rice kind of got the short straw here. hillary clinton, i think our own candy crowley can attest hillary clinton doesn't do talk shows often. i think hillary clinton has been doing this a really long time and knows what it looks like is not going to be what ends up being true, even the next day or in the end. it was caution on her part she wasn't the one and there are those who think she was put in a bad position. >> thank you very much. "outfront" tonight, the chairman of the house intelligence committee and good to see you. appreciate you're taking the time. obviously, now hearing as elyse has been able to confirm there were a decision made. and given to the american people. why did that happen? >> well, i can't say why, but that's incredibly disturbing information. this was not barack obama's ambassador, the democratic am boss darr. it was t
to solve the debt mess but just she the world we are serious about tackles the mess. ask bill clinton. sometimes you just need a do-able plan that is enough to get the markets believing and the rating agencies to hold off downgrading and have americans feeling more confident. you did not have to wave a wand and tell us how you will make all the red ink disappear overnight. you just have to state a plan on starting the process. tomorrow night be the former reagan economic adviser who remembers how bill clinton and how ronald reagan did that. you do not have to change things immediately, you just have to give a plan that makes people think and hope and pray you have started the process, right? >>guest: that is correct. you need to get growth. you have to get growth. you cannot balance the budget on the backs of the unemployed and the poor. that is where a flat tax comes in. it allows attraction of the capital abroad. sam nunn was correct, you have to cut government spending. that has to happen, especially entitlements where you pay people not to work. there are other ways of bringing th
clinton for president and in it, you wrote that the sex barrier is not taken as seriously as the racial one. do you still feel that way? >> well, you know, it depends on the situation. i think each person in this situation should be able to judge and that's especially true for women of color who may find themselves dealing with both in different situations. so there's no competition of tears here. they're both wrong. but obviously women are half of every group. so it's more extensive. it may or may not be more serious given the situation. but it's more extensive. >> jennifer: do you predict that we'll have a female president in the next four to eight years -- i shouldn't say four. maybe i would say four. 2016, is it possible? >> well, sure it is possible. i, frankly, did not think that hillary clinton could win not because of her but because of the fact that as long as most of us are -- men and women are raised primarily by women and not by men we associate female authority with childhood. and you could se
-american audience. hillary clinton did the same thing. you notice a change in the way he delivers the speech? >> let me be totally clear if you just watch touchdown we have seen obama speak in public over the last 10 years, will note this, accent is abcush. this is not the way obama talks. it is not the way he has talked in scores of peaches i have watched him give, or public appearances viseen him make. this is a put-on. that's one. second issue, he is telling a predominantly black audience something very clear-- the federal government doesn't like you because you are black -- [overlapping dialogue] >> sean: that's what he is saying. >> they don't like you because you are black. that's the theme from front to back, from beginning to endful they don't like you because of your skin can remember. that's a shockingly -- a nasty think this to say, a devicive thing to say, in the case of katrina, it's untrue. at the moment he utters those words, you are getting short-changed in the katrina reconstruction funds. the government had pledged $110 billion, two weeks before this speech, the bush administration
of the oversight and government reform committee sent letter to hillary clinton asking why the request for security were denied by washington. they site multiple government officials as the sources. it has threats on facebook that targeted ambassadorsteins. andrea, we are three weeks to the day from the four ambassadors were killed. you have a committee now saying the answers are not good enough. they don't make sense. secretary of state hillary clinton says she will cooperate with congress. the right thing to do. there will be a hearing next wednesday. interesting today when we were talking last night and today, you saw that the press is not letting up on this. in particular, the editorial boards are starting to say wait a second, something does not seem right here. >> andrea: i don't think they could ignore it any longer. it's a shame it has take then long. but the evidence has just been overwhelming. really, credit fox news for leading the charge on this. the reporting is excellent. we have found out also last week that there with four attacks leading up to the attack in libya. the signs were th
in and of itself. you know, we need presidents that are strong. you know, bill clinton, as critical as i was during monica lewinsky, you have to hand it to him, his ability to compartmentalize, do his job, deal with impeachment was, frankly, pretty amazing, in terms of the skill level and his ability to handle that. >> steel will. the survivor. there is no question about that. it's worth looking at. but you were on with karl scproaf it's great to hear karl rove out there again. i used to go talk to him during the bush years. he would roll out the statistics and the arguments-- >>> he's good. >> and make the case. this business of the unemployment numbers. you know, is it a trend? i have looked at that time two ways. it is no comfort to the tens of millions of people who are unemployed, under-employed or just taken themselves out of the job market. in the second thing is, i think the average viewer is sitting here, asking the question... what's the plan to fix it? what's the goal? how are we going to do this? and whether -- in our polls, in romney's case. but the other night, he made a case. he said
the panel for the clinton global initiative. they are lloyd blankfein, the chairman and ceo of goldman sachs, andrew liveris, the president, chairman and ceo of dow chemical, and john chambers, the chairman and ceo of cisco. the conversation was fascinating. listen in. >>> lloyd, let me start with you. when you look at the global economy, right now, you know, what is it, four years after the crash, what does it look like to you? >> well, we're definitely in a muddle-through phase, slow growth, very disappointing. but i think one of the things that was achieved -- and by the way, in hindsight it may look small but while we were living through it, it was very large. there was a substantial chance too substantial to live with of things falling off the rail. they're still out there, and a lot of the things that would foster growth are still uncertain and are still, you know, frankly they're still in the forward. but i think what was taken off the table recently by the -- frankly by the central banks acting by themselves and less by government through fiscal policy was the real blow-up risk. so i
. >> john: go back to the clinton days. my instinct is to answer the question that is asked but consultants to say don't. >> you are still answering my questions but most of the time you want to be delivering your message. >> they say sarah palin was good at that. >> governor palin answered the questions on her terms. >> that is not so. but because that is just a quick answer. i wanted to talk about, again, my lord on energy. >> she was able to pivot most of the questions on to ground that she was comfortable in handling the questions is on. >> john: they kept grilling. >> you think colleges are stupid. don't you think college is stupid is an irresponsible remark to make? >> no. for some people college is stupid. >> now they are going to make a commercial saying college is stupid. college is stupid. bad for our kids, bad for america. >> knowing that that one bad moment can wreck your campaign makes candidates very careful. when gerald ford debated jimmy carter there was a technical glitch. >> the broadcasters in philadelphia have temporarily lost the audio. >> instead of leaving the stage t
a professorial know it all. >> i understand the broader point that senator clinton has been trying to make over the last several weeks. >> reporter: tonight's format is from 2008, two podiums, moderator jim lehrer, 90 minutes, no breaks. a back-and-forth on domestic issues with possible fireworks. >> i think you're going to see both of them be more aggressive than either of their campaigns have predicted, because the stakes are pretty high. >> reporter: the contest could get even tighter after tonight's clash. but most here in denver agree, this race could be decided by this debate. at the university of denver, i'm steve handelsman, news4. now back to you. >>> you can watch tonight's debate here on nbc 4, live coverage at 9:00. and you can find a watch party by going to our home page on nbc washington.com. >>> a 15-year-old girl groped while walking down the street. the fifth reported incident of an assault in springfield in the past month. pat collins explains why the recent attacks have the people there on edge. pat? >> reporter: jim, now it appears there may be a fifth victim in this string
clinton said that secretary believes rice has done 88 a suburb job as -- done a quote, suburb job as u.n. ambassador. contravened their statements to the american people. and congress. we'll take all that up here tonight with former cia operative, mike baker, author of "new york times" bestseller, the amateur, inside look at obama administration. ed klein, what would mildred friedman think of obamanomics. is this a cover-up by the obama administration? certainly the administration has stonewalled congress and the national media about details of what happened on september 11. the obama administration is chosen to rely on the fbi to investigate the terrorist attacks in benghazi. which killed 4 americans including our ambassador. fbi investigators however remain in tripoli, they have now been for almost 3 weeks, they have done nothing, seen nothing, and obama administration, refers all questions to the fbi. which knows nothing. one could say, conveniently show, fox news correspondent katherine hairage has been reporting this throughout we turn to katherine for a live report. reporter: tha
, this is not the kind of policy you want to have. >> bill clinton tried the approach i am talking about. we created 23 million new job went from ficit to surplus and businesses did very well. so, in some ways we have data on which approach is more likely to create jobs and opportunities for americans and i believe that the economy works best when middle class families are getting tax breaks so they have money in l pockets and those of us who did extraordinarily well because of the magnificent country we are living in. >> so what came out on top after last night's showdown? we'll ask obama delegate brian benjamin and fox news contractor angela mccowan. >> thank you. >> it was a long night. angela who won and why? >> of course romney did. people want substance and solution and not glorified speeches. obama is good at that and he didn't have the teleprompter and he had to defend what he did. and sometimes he was babbling on and you coon understand -- couldn't understand him. romney stayed on point. he has to perform well in the next debate. >> before we get to the next debate. brian who do you think won
this what was really just a mismatch against hillary clinton and we are literally on the airplane in mid flight. it was a crazy time. and i remember in those early day i remember the candidate coming through headquarter and he was walking from the back of the room. he was wearing black societies heading my way. i couldn't focus on him. all i could think of it's just a big desk farm with open computer boxes. how are we going if i the space. the walls were white. just like this. the sunlight was coming through the win go. we didn't have campaign sign age. we didn't have anything to put on the walls get. he's walking toward me, and i was thinking, i remember this time because it's really one of the last times i think i talked to him when he didn't have secret service detail. and i'm sure his life changed from that moment. i was thinking, i look back on that and think how much my life changed too. he was tethered to the blackberry that was constantly a stream of things coming a me. it was the -- you know, i'll tell you one more story about the first moment. michelle obama. i met michelle oba
and bill clinton wisely took the dividend from that, he was able to then raise taxes that reagan and clton had lowered, and used that dividend to get us into a surplus situation. so it was a combination of realigning america with the world, getting rid of a trade deficit, having an export-led recovery and then taking the dividend and not spending it so much. mr. clinton was very shrewd that way so kudos to two bright presidents, reagan and clinton. >> dan, i want to bring you in because it's a much different global economy than it was in the '40s and '50s. is this working against a large-scale rebound like we saw after roosevelt? it's a very different world. >> well, look, first of all, the notion that obama didn't cut taxes and all he did was absurd. the stimulus was one-third tax cuts, big payroll tax cuts. plenty of tax cuts. >> very true. >> and for small business tax cuts, too. >> export boom, exports on a monthly basis have risen 50% from their low in march of 2009. the difference is that we have an economy in which rising demand doesn't necessarily translate into more jobs instantly
with bill clinton in california and clinton will be on the campaign trail all week and this as a new gallup poll showing the tighter race after the debate. president obama up by 3 points after being up by 6 at his peak. abc's david kerley is on the campaign trail in florida tonight. >> reporter: 9,000 flag-waving romney supporters jammed the town square, 6,000 last night, all ready to turn the president out of office. >> you all have the chance to hear his answers or his not -- nonanswers. now, of course, days later we're hearing his excuses and next january we'll be watching him leave the white house for the last time. >> reporter: team romney is feeling his debate performance. the president obama is realizing he didn't perform at his peak. >> i think you can assume he reviewed the tape and it will inform -- it will inform how he handles these subsequent debates. >> reporter: it wasn't all bad news, the president was buoyed by the dp in the unemployment rate to below 8% and broke his own record by raising $181 million in just september. putting him on track to hit a billion dollars. and to
during the 2008 primary when hillary clinton was asked what she would say to voters who seemed to like barack obama more. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. >> thank you. >> governor romney's 23 debate performances during the republican primary his weakness showed when he allowed competitors to get und her is skin prompting irritated off script moments that gave a new meaning to the #awkward. >> anderson -- >> you say you knew. >> would you please wait? >> are you just going to deep talking? >> yes, sir. >> let me finish what i have to say i'm running for office i can't have ill heels. >> when will you release yours? will you follow your father's examples? >> maybe. i don't know how many years i'll release. i'll take a look at what our documents are -- >> you asked me an entirely different question. >> wow. john heilemann, i can't get enough of the semi vintage romney debate clips but want to know as a resident expert on all things campaign related having written a book called "game change" how does this, the pressure
in benghazi? that's what happened, according to house republicans in a letter sent to secretary clinton today. one of the authors of the letter, representative darrell issa comes "outfront." >>> plus, we're 24 hours away from the first presidential debate. what are they going to say? we've got advisers to both of them. mitt and barack "outfront" tonight. and how a lot of money is riding on tomorrow's debate. a lot. let's go "outfront." >>> good evening, everyone, i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, warning signs missed? that's what the republican head of the house oversight committee is charging tonight in the lead up to the u.s. ambassador's death in libya. he's calling for congress to return for a special hearing next week. it was a three-page letter and in it, darrell issa listed 13 security incidents and threats in libya in the past six months. including in june, a pro gadhafi facebook page mentioned his running habits. the posting directed a threat against stevens. issa says stevens stopped his morning runs for about a week and then resumed them. in june, an ied was successfully placed
. the masterful performance by bill clinton where he reset the clock on the economy. of course, this 47%. these breaks have been going toward obama, haven't they? i mean, i can't think the last time romney got a break. >> reporter: no, really not since -- you have to go back, i would say, to may or june at the earliest to come up with a time where you feel like romney was controlling the narrative, controlling the tempo of this campaign. and then, you're right, didn't catch a break. it starts with the health care ruling at the end of june that somehow goes obama's way and then it marched through july, he takes a week off. a lot of people question that. then he ends up doing this overseas trip, as you point out. they blew their convention. blew an opportunity there. one thing about romney is he's had more experience going into a big debate behind than any other candidate at this point in time. i mean, he had this a couple of times. he needed a good debate performance to save himself in florida during the primary campaign. needed a good debate performance to save his campaign in 2002 in t
know, the clinton speech was the highlight of that convention, not the obama speech. and here he came into this, i think he sat on his lead last night and what you learn in this game is the other guy and by the way, i disagree with gloria on one thing. i think this was a new mitt romney we saw last night. one we haven't seen before. i don't think he was ever as effective in a primary debate as he was this time. he was head and shoulders above his performances in the past. >> he was a new mitt romney in a different way. i will say, he was as aggressive as he was in those primary debates when he needed to be. he's a good performer under pressure. but i do think the obama campaign has a point when they say this is a different mitt romney who is not the tea party mitt romney. this was somebody who said there is a role for government, he agreed with president obama on education to get those women voters on board. you know, it was a different calibration about a more centrist -- >> did you see a tack to the center? there were times romney was saying we'll keep the good things in obama care,
